Map Study completed in class May 12
Chapter 20 review questions started in class on May 12 are due on Tuesday, May 20.
Map Quiz – 5/27
These will be the last two grades of the school year!
The unit test for Latin America will be held on February 12. It will cover the material in chapters 8 & 9 in the textbook, all handouts, and discussion notes from the unit including current events. The test will be like the others, part scantron, part written. It will not contain a map, but you are expected to know relative location of physical and political features.
What we were planning to do on Tuesday (review geography 1-3 and take the quest) will now happen on Thursday. The chapter 4 packet is now due on Friday since 1/10 is now an H day instead of an A day.
This will be an all Scantron 60 point assessment (not as big as a test, but more than a quiz; hence “quest”). It will cover the material in chapters 1-3 as well as the geography skills handbook. Because we will not have as much time for discussion as I would like (because of the snow day), the quest will now be open note. Be sure to have read chapters 1-3 and the Geography Skills handbook as well as have taken notes from the chapter. You will be allowed to use your notes on the quest.
Chapter 4 in the geography book is covered on the midterm but there is no seperate assessment in the 2nd marking period. There will be one final homework assignment concerning Chapter 4 that will be assigned on Jan 7.
For planning purposes… We will use class time on Jan 9 to go over the Econ Test and the Geo, as well as the chapter 4 homework assignment in preparation for the midterm. The midterm will cover government, economics, and geography. A review sheet will follow.
Conecpts covered on the quiz include:
- factors of production
- traditional economies
- 7 principles of market economy
- 3 basic economic questions
- circular flow model
- supply, demand, equilibrium (graphing too)
- forces that cause changes in supply & demand (graphing)
- shortage & surplus (graphing)
- price elasticity
- price controls
You will be assessed on your understanding of the economic spectrum and the political ideologies of capitalism. socialism, and communism on Monday 10/21.
Having discussed capitalism. communism, and socialism in class today, you should be able to now form opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of each economic ideology. For homework, complete the pro/con chart for each ideology. You should fill the entire box with AT LEAST FOUR PROS AND FOUR CONS for each ideology.
